    For example.

    I have an account on tripod. I can link to files in the ftp server, and anybody can download it.

    If you want to download them through the cmd, you need my login though. With the browser, it's accessible to anybody. How do I get the files in FTP like I would in web browser via a link, but in the cmd without loggin in. I'm sure this has to be possible.

    Just login as ftp with the password being some junk containing @ char.
    $ENV: FreeBSD, gcc, emacs

    Please fill me in as to why that makes any sense whatsoever.

    What part of this can't you understand, pick any anonymous ftp site, say ftp.xfree86.org and try to login as "guest".

    This fails because the ftp software by default only accepts ftp/anonymous login as the request for "anonymous" ftp session. In order to use guest instead, they'll need to make some configuration changes to add it to the list of anonymous lusers.

    If anonymous login is enabled you'll see the message prompting you to enter your email address as the password. In actuality, any string containg '@' should work.
